Sims Wrestling

The four-time Peachtree Conference Champion Sims Middle School wrestling team started the season just as they left off last year — by dominating. The team beat Fairforest 90-6 on Monday. The Sims team is led by Coach Jon Langenfeld as part of the Union County wrestling program led by Coach G.B. McDaniel.

“It’s exciting to see the young guys be enthusiastic and yell for their teammates,” McDaniel said. “Maybe I should take the whole UCHS team to see what they forget sometimes — it’s about having fun and pulling for one another.”

“It feels special to lead this program sometimes,” McDaniel added. “Thanks, Coach L., for leading these young guys, and thanks, moms, for helping out so much!”

McDaniel said he hopes the team will keep its momentum rolling for the rest of the week.

Union County Wrestling

Last Wednesday in Boiling Springs, the Union County varsity wrestling team lost 55-15.

“We had a bunch of kids who couldn’t wrestle and one who missed weight and cost us a forfeit — one of our best kids, too,” McDaniel said. “Boiling Springs is a tough squad but I like starting out the season wrestling tough teams to toughen us up before we get into region.”

Freshman wrestler Labrayon Woods wrestled up a weight class at 195, pulling out a win. McDaniel said everyone on the team except for two wrestlers moved up a weight class or two.

“Boiling Springs is good, but I would like to wrestle them later with our full squad,” McDaniel said. “It’s hard to win giving away 12 points on two forfeits.”

The Union County JV wrestling team won with a final score of 42-27.

Match winners were as follows:


  • 170 Luis Gallegos won by pin
  • 195 Labrayon Woods won 4 -2
  • 285 Octavius Thompson won by pin


  • 138 Ty’Keil Fleming won by pin
  • 145 Shemar Moore won by pin
  • 152 Dabreon Scott won 7-2
  • 210 Trevell Norman won 4-1
  • 220 Iijah Means won by pin
  • 285 Chase Puckett won by pin
